The singer and guitarist known for his romantic melodies was bestowed quite an honor by the royal family this week, reported BBC.

Ed Sheeran was given the MBE award, Member of the Most Excellence Order of the British Empire, by the Prince Charles. Recipients are honored for outstanding service to the community or local “hands on” service.

Sheeran was the most-streamed artist of 2017 and in the past has released hits such as “Perfect,” “Shape of You” and “Kiss Me.”

When asked how he felt about receiving the accolade, Sheeran said he believed his grandfather would be quite proud of him.

“My grandfather was a massive royalist,” he said. “He had all the commemorative plates and stuff, and he died on this day four years ago, so it’s actually quite a nice full circle thing, I guess he’d be pretty proud.”
